With seven games gone, the League Two table is beginning to take shape. It is rather predictable which end the Daggers find themselves at, as we look set for a third consecutive season of struggle with only goal difference keeping us out of the drop zone. What’s going wrong and is anything going right?
In mid-March the Daggers were doomed, sitting bottom of the league and hurtling towards a second successive relegation. Finally kicking into action, we were a team reborn in the final seven weeks of the season, pulling well clear of the drop zone to finish in the dizzy heights of 19th place. As a poignant juxtaposition, we’ve also left it late to look at just how we managed it…
OK, we’ve just been lazy, but it sounded good no?
Lately, the Daggers have been on the slide. A painful, jarring slide which makes you wince as you gradually drop to your inevitable fate, powerless to stop the force of gravity. Rather like when you were a child and made the mistake of going to the playground in your shorts before crying in agony as your legs screeched against the metal surface.
